  1. I really hope Twitter isn’t dying, because I don’t plan to ever use Facebook (which I’m sure has plenty of abuse too). I’ve met a lot of wonderful people via Twitter! Well, as long as I have my beloved blog…

    • I think it was meant metaphorically in terms of less engagement, less community. The abuse is everywhere online (unfortunately), which is part of the point of the piece. People forget that there are real people involved. And it is really easy to take something in the wrong way, especially in such a few words.

      I don’t use Facebook either, so I, too, would be lost without it. Google + is not the same. But I have met so many great friends on Twitter! 🙂
